SALT LAKE CITY — Utah topped 10,000 cases of COVID-19 Tuesday, according to the Utah Department of Health.

There have now been 10,202 cases in the state. 203 new cases were reported Wednesday. That's a 2 percent growth rate from Monday.

One new death was reported Tuesday, but the total remains at 113.

That's because a previously reported case was removed from the totals because the deceased patient was determined to be a resident of another state.

Twelve new hospitalizations were required, and there are currently 108 COVID-19 positive patients being treated in Utah hospitals. Since the beginning of the outbreak, 801 hospitalizations have been required.

221,791 Utahns have now been tested for the disease. That's up 3,679 from Monday and the positive percentage rate now stands at 4.6 percent.
